I for one welcome the fandubs, as they bring some life into a community so in need of creative works. Because if fans can't get their stuff together and create good stuff on their own, it's a lost cause.
Fandubs just get under my skin because unlike fanfilms, fanart, or even fanfics (on concept!), one of them acts as a direct replacement of the original work. This one really isn't different - it's taking the only season of the show entirely unmolested by DiC's censorship, awful writing, and terrible music and deciding "Well, let's fix that because a bunch of people watched this as a kid and are nostalgic for crap now."
The fact that I can never find fandubs that don't play god with the source material against the will of the original artists, writers, directors, voice cast, etc. is just one big black mark against them.
